Sketching badly is good, UX Australia 2014


Published on

Various styles of sketching are used in UX and these will be demonstrated. I’m no artist, but I can sketch. They are funny or odd and are definitely not fine works of art. While my sketches are ‘bad’, they are good because anyone can do them and they serve to communicate what’s needed in the design process.

About Caronne Carruthers-Taylor: I’m a passionate and experienced UX Designer. I’ve worked in both public and private sectors, and enjoy applying user experience principles and practices at both the strategic and project levels. I love UX because people and design thinking are the most important aspects of any design.
